There is a peace that Christ bestows on us.
Who uses but Christ’s vision finds a peace so deep and quiet, undisturbable and wholly changeless, that the world contains no counterpart. Comparisons are still before this peace. And all the world departs in silence as this peace envelops it, and gently carries it to truth, no more to be the home of fear. For love has come, and healed the world by giving it Christ’s peace.
Father, the peace of Christ is given us, because it is Your Will that we be saved. Help us today but to accept Your gift, and judge it not. For it has come to us to save us from our judgement on ourselves.
I really struggled to find my peace today. I was still unsettled by the interactions of yesterday, still looking for a way to do the best for both of us. In the end, after much analysis, I handed it over to the Holy Spirit, admitting that my best analysis had brought me to this point.
Although I did a lot of research, I only managed one paragraph on the new book. My head was full, and the couple whose story I was due to write today said they needed my full attention.
I called it a day quite early with a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and a sting of comedy shows. Sometimes you just have to admit it’s not going to happen and have a laugh.
